The long awaited awardees of the non teaching category of the 2016 MMUST Gala Dinner and Awards were finally unveiled on Thursday, 27th April, 2017. Presenting the awardees before the Vice Chancellor, the Chairman of the Awards Committee, Dr. Bernard Wesonga explained that the delay had been occasioned by the rigorous process that was used to develop a suitable criteria and go through the nominations and vetting process.

The Vice Chancellor, Prof. FAO Otieno underscored the need to recognize high achievers as this will motivate staff to go an extra mile in discharging their duties. He noted that his administration values performance and appealed to staff in their various capacities to work hard and help MMUST to live up to its vision of becoming the premier University.

Prof. Otieno decried laxity by some staff who cheat the system by failing to be at work on time. He emphasized the importance of optimum use of resources at the University. Adding that MMUST loses a lot when staff do not work as expected. 

The VC revealed that he had presented a proposal to the University Council on Staff Motivation and was optimistic that it would approve the “13th Cheque” to appreciate the top performers to be effected next year. He directed the Human Resource section to do a Needs Assessment for training for capacity building of staff.

Prof. Otieno urged the Awards committee to consider a prize for an employee who wins twice in a row for a 3 day holiday for two in Mombasa. He appealed to staff to continuously market MMUST by offering quality service so as to enhance the image of the University as we are in a competitive market.

Prof. Otieno noted that future promotions will also be based on employee previous performance and community service. He observed that “success is contagious” and urged the winners not to relax but work even harder as all eyes are on them to see if they deserved the awards. The best employees were awarded certificates and a gift voucher.
